Jacob Scoggin passed away on Saturday, December 2, 2023. His cremation has been entrusted to Melton-Kitchens Funeral Home, and no services are planned at this time.

Jacob Raymond Scoggin was born on February 6, 1989, at Harris Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas. He liked being called “Jake” and was also called “Jake the Snake.” He started sports at the age of four and continued through high school, and he even walked on the Rugby team at UNT.

Jake attended Brewer ISD, where he played soccer and football, ran track, and pole vaulted. He got his varsity letter jacket as a freshman for Varsity Soccer. He was the football team’s kicker, kicking soccer-style kickoffs and field goals. He also loved playing defense and grabbing interceptions. He grew up camping with friends and family at Dinosaur State Park in Glen Rose, Texas.

Jake received an associate’s business degree at TCC and graduated with honors. He then graduated and received his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Logistics and Operation Supply Chain Management at UNT, where he graduated with a 3.9 GPA on May 11, 2013.

Jake became a certified scuba diver at age 11, and his first blue water dive in Cozumel was the “Devil’s Throat” at 136 feet deep. He continued his certifications with Wreck Diving and Night Diving and continued to dive with his mom for the next 20 years. Jake also loved boating and grew up in the family’s Javelin boat. He was great on skis, tubes, and rockets and was awesome on the kneeboard, along with anything else that could be towed behind a boat. Jake loved all sports, specifically the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys. He even worked security for the Cowboys team at the old stadium in Irving. He loved “Old Country,” and legend has it, he was the Karaoke King in Houston when it came to his favorites like George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Johnny Cash. He loved to tip his hat to the ladies and spin them around the dance floor.

Jake was a top salesperson at All-Tex Pipe Supply as well as at Ameripipe. He lived in both Beaumont and Spring, Texas, since college graduation, but he grew up at the family ranch in Stephens County and enjoyed hunting and fishing, along with riding four-wheelers and the Yamaha Mule while at the ranch. He loved to cook, especially outside on the ranch’s cook pit. Jacob would do anything for anyone and was always there for his friends and family. He made a profession of faith when he was eight years old, and his family knows he is in God’s loving arms. Jacob was 34 years old – gone too soon and will be in our hearts forever.

He is survived by his grandmother, Patricia Swift; sister, Mistynn Smith; and mother, Cynthia Scoggin; along with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends.
